    I was wondering what you guys thought of these two train horns I'm looking at getting on my taco. I like the Wolo horns, and would like to avoid having an onboard air as it would take up too much room. These put out 121 db which i guess is pretty loud.

    Should I go with the 3 or 4?? I like the 3 but would like some other opinions.

    Stock horns are 125db....so those horns are not very loud. You need the real deal for the seriously loud horns, and a BIG tank of air.

    FWIW, i tired them, and then sold them back on ebay for a little more than what i paid for them. Not very loud, however the tone is tuned in a way that says (pardon me i have a cheap horn system). I bought hornblaster horns, and love them. I have a few pics of my install where no space that i need is being taken up.(if you want to see them). the horns now say( GET THE FU** OUT OF THE WAY!) :)

    Thanks, i guess if they sound kinda cheap and aren't that much louder than the stock taco horn I should go with the hornblaster ones. I don't wan't anything over the top loud though!

    i put good old american horns fron a '63 dodge in front. Deep big car sound for a junk yard price. Of course, any early american big irons will do. I just like the sound of old Chrysler products

    The real way to do it is with on-board air.

    Even the fastest pump takes a second to generate pressure.

    Plus, on-board air is great for off-roading and fixing flats.
